KINGSTON — Sanborn Regional High School (SRHS) announced that seventy-nine of its graduating seniors, a record number for the school, have met the requirements for the New Hampshire Scholar program. New Hampshire Scholars is a community-based program that encourages students to take a more rigorous core course of study in high school. It is based on a partnership between local business leaders and the school district. New Hampshire Scholars is federally-funded through the U.S. Department of Education, College Access Challenge Grant (CACG).
Sanborn Regional High School has been involved with the program since 2010. The percentage of Sanborn graduates who qualify to be New Hampshire Scholars has steadily risen from 35% in 2010 to 50% in 2013. In 2012, 21% of New Hampshire seniors qualified for the program, making Sanborn’s participation rate one of the highest of all New Hampshire Schools.
New Hampshire Scholars Program Director Scott Power attributed Sanborn’s success to several factors including support from the administration and the school’s strong connections to the local business community. He offered high praise for the Guidance Department, under the direction of Michelle Catena, because they have made this program a high priority in their college counseling work with students. Sanborn counselors work hard to try to make all of our students eligible for this elite program. You can learn more about this program by visiting their website here: http://www.nhscholars.org
